us that this book shows president obama as someone who likes to ask a lot of questions, they say someone who is decisive, and takes a broad view of history, national security and his role, that's from senior administration officials. the book, though, does portray a national security team that is deeply torn over the war in afghanistan. again, white house officials say that the book also shows the president who pushed to get the afghan strategy right. that's from white house officials. jon: some of the early reporting indicates that this book quotes the president in great detail. the white house gave bob woodward all kinds of access. why? >> reporter: and they always do, don't therbgs administration officials, and past presidents? this is his 16th book, the first 15 were best sellers, i mean, he's arguably the most famous journalist in the country. so the idea from an administration's point of view is to talk to bob woodward and try to manage the message, if you will, instead of having unnamed sores do that for the administration. jon: shifting gears, julie, the president's top e

months ago this week, a top to bottom overhaul of u.s. health care, an overhaul that presidents dating back to teddy roosevelt have contemplated, debated, or attempted. six months ago, it was sign into law by president obama. today as you may have seen live here on cnn, the president talking about provisions of that law that come into force this week. this is the first of that health care bill. it's what the white house calls a patients' bill of rights. he's just about the only democrat who is going to use health and reform in the same sentence because the reason has to do with the calendar. we're 40 days away from the elections where every single house seat and 37 senate seats are up for grabs. voters are split to say the least. 40% of americans favor reform, 56% oppose it. there are some tricks to that poll because the 56% oppose, some oppose because it didn't go far enough. most say it's too liberal, but a sizable chunk says it doesn't go far enough. when we ask which party can handle the issue better, it's a dead heat. all of this forms a backdrop to the president's visit to a fami
police procedures and what not that would be used in any crime scene were used in connection with this event. mike does mention the excellent work that the fbi did piecing together the puzzle that led to the identification of the terrorists within a short period of time. however, the preventive side of it definitely became more of a military exercise. even in that regard, the fbi and department of justice had central roles to play to develop a strategy that could be implemented to look at our borders. >> there had been a number of terrorist attacks. there were the embassies in east africa. the first world trade center attack. you could even go back to the u.s. marine barracks bombing in beirut in 1983. in every case with the united states government did principally was to send out the fbi to try to find people you could identify as perpetrators so that they could be captured and prosecuted. what you hear from all of the discussion and is very important for people to focus on is that this was a different case. this was not about going out to find people who did it to punish th
